Performance Issue with Firewall in the middle between CRM and Database Server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Apologize for cross posting.

    Please consider this Intranet deployment. Please notice that this deployment is intranet deployment and not Internet Facing Deployment. The CRM server cannot be accessed on the internet.

    Client Browser -> CRM Server -> Firewall -> SQL / Database Server


    The common practice in the live production is placing the database server inside the firewall. I would like to know whether there’s a performance issue if the CRM Server needs to connect to the database server through the firewall.

    I am very concerned that the firewall will disconnect any idle connection within certain timeframe, so it might disturb the user’s activities when browsing the CRM application.

    Thanks for the reply.
